First-hand account from inside Qusayr

Reporter Ali Hashem just left the flashpoint city of Qusayr and spoke to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour as he reached the Syria-Lebanon border.

“It's just a city of rubble,” Hashem told Amanpour. “I wasn't able even to find one place that wasn't destroyed.”

There are no opposition fighters left in Qusayr, according to Hashem.

“There is nothing that reflects that they are any kind of pockets of resistance in the city anymore,” he said. “There are no civilians in this city anymore.”

In the video above you can see Amanpour interview with Hashem and his full account of the devastation left in Qusayr.

    I ask myself repeatedly: "what will do the populace the most good?" The world's politicos, dancing around the question of intervention, seem to have lost sight of this question in their greed for resources and political gain. At this late stage, it seems that nothing will help the Syrian population. Qusayr's "rubblization" underscores the pointlessness of military power as far as the peoples of Syria are concerned.
